BIOGRAPHY of FRANK JAMES RYAN, JR./FjR
The City That Never Sleeps, New YorK, U.S.A.

Since I began my passtime lit endeavor in 2006, the majority of my daily readership continues to come from non-member visitor traffic, from the Tri-State Metropolitan Area of the Northeast United States, which includes: Central & Southern New York, Southern & Western Connecticut & Northern to Cental New Jersey. Some of these sources include: Bookstores, local and County Libraries, Junior and Senior High Schools, as well as several New York based Community Colleges. In addition, as of February of 2009, my work has been on display with various literary groups and assosiations throughout the Northeast United States. All of these ''off-site'' & educational affiliated avenues continue to be the strongest link in my efforts to maintain a healthy daily readership base. Thank you for visiting...I hope you enjoy my work, as well as the work of the many multi-talented members on this site...FjR

F l e u r F a t a l e...

Comes nite, fate befalls a Black Moon orchid,
Toasted umber bedaubs... curled leafed-tips,
Coursing arbored veins with a wrecklessness
As cancer permeates, the nodes and marrow.

Comes the rain, Mother Natures sweet elixir;
Remission.....could Death be not found here?
Miles away...... a Richelieu rosebush is dying
Strickened by curse of Black Spot 'n Dieback.
